Fred is out, is Rudy next?

Fred ThompsonFred Thompson has finally figured out what many of us have known for quite some time. It is time to throw in the towel and head back to Hollywood. It is actually with a little sadness that we must bid farewell to the former Senator’s bid for the Republican nomination.

In the beginning of Fred Thompson’s campaign I was really hopeful, as well as many others, that he would give a new life to a Republican field that was sadly lacking any vibrancy. Unfortunately, many were disappointed by Thompson’s poor performance in the early debates.

Thompson left many with the impression that he did not really care if he was nominated and perhaps that was his strategy all along. However, if that is the case, then perhaps he played it too far. Nevertheless, he did seem to be getting better in the debates while trading barbs with Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani.

It is likely that Thompson decided to call it quits because he was performing very badly in the primaries. Thompson’s poll numbers had been steadily dropping and he soon found himself rating lower than Ron Paul, which seems to be some sort of measurement for the Republicans.

If the Nevada Primary is any indication, then perhaps Rudy Giuliani will be the next candidate to drop out of the race. Giuliani’s poll numbers are even worse than Thompson’s and it seems that his campaign is done. The only thing that is missing is Rudy’s concession. It is nice to see the field starting to narrow and it may be easier to determine just who might be the candidate nominated by the Party.

The race now seems to be between Mike Huckabee and John McCain, but Mitt Romney is still in there fighting and it seems to be too close to call. I must say that I believe it will still be Hillary Clinton versus Rudy Giuliani in the Presidential election. However, barring any miracles that might bring the Giuliani campaign back to life, my prediction may be wrong. Nevertheless, I will stand by it and if I am wrong, I will be grateful.

  3. Ron Paul is next.

  4. No, Ron Paul is not next, unless he decides to go third Party which is what his supporters are starting to hope for. They have invested a lot of time, money, and emotion into his campaign and it would be wrong of him not to continue running. Even if there is no chance of him getting the Republican nomination, which is most likely the case, it would be a disaster for him if he were to stop and he would become the new Ross Perot in all aspects.

  5. Ron Paul is next.

  6. No he’s not, you guys are mean. Just kidding. I have a feeling that he will not get the Republican nomination and it is likely that he was never going to just because the powers that be have thier agenda and that does not include the Constitution, or liberty.

    I hope that he goes for a third Party run which will probably give them a crazy run for thier money, and I must say that if it is not Ron Paul, than I do not care who is President because they are all the same and working towards the same conclusion.
